Softball Schedule Changes, Lacrosse looks to bounce back: FRIDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


Hello weekend, Louisville fans. Typical spring sports scheduling shifts thanks to the weather forecast.  The good news is that we will also look forward to 'Spring Forward' this weekend!  Roll the clock up an hour on Saturday night (if any of you still possess a digital or analog clock).

Softball schedule update

The most up-to-date change to the Cardinals softball schedule from what we know at CardCouple..  

SATURDAY @ Ulmer Stadium
CARDS vs Valparaiso (4-6, 0-0 MVC) 11:30AM
CARDS vs Western Kentucky (9-3, 0-0 C-USA) 4:30PM

Louisville's two opponents will face off in-between the Cards game so fans will have a chance to grab some lunch or take a walk around campus. 

I recommend the banana milkshake at Dairy Del and or Dairy Kastle's taco in a bag.. A couple wins for the Cards would be a nice cherry on top. Burger Boy on S Brook St. also makes a classic burger and fry plate if you're looking for a place with more food options.  I think all that should satisfy your game day hunger.  This has been your first edition of Daryl's game day pit stop for fans. Ha ha

(EDITOR'S NOTE: Daryl was not paid for these food establishment props.  Knowing her, shee's probably working on some kind of endorsement, though. ) 


#19 University of Louisville women's lacrosse travels to Mount Pleasant, Mich. for a matchup with Central Michigan on Friday at 1 p.m. ET.

Coming off a hard-fought loss at No. 8 Virginia, the Cardinals are 2-2 overall and 0-1 in ACC action. The Chippewas enter Friday's game 3-2 on the season and 1-0 in MAC play.


University of Louisville senior Makenli Forrest captured the 2021 NCAA Indoor Weight Throw title with a heave of 23.26m (76-3.75) Thursday at the Randal Tyson Track Center in Fayetteville, Ark. The feat marks the third NCAA Indoor Weight Throw title in program history and the first since 2010 when D'Ana McCarty secured her second consecutive championship in the event.

Forrest's personal best mark breaks the school record of 22.76 (74-8.25) that stood prior to Thursday's competition, it also stands as the top collegiate throw this year.

One couldn't blame the Louisville Track and Field squad if they used an alternation from a popular move and exhorted "Throw, Forrest, THROW!"  when she enters the circle. 

Volleyball News

The VolleyCards are going to Durham for Volleyball, instead of playing Clemson, as originally scheduled.  They'll have Saturday and Sunday matches against the Blue Devils, as far as we know, for now. 

Cardinal Couple Radio Hour Podcast

I'm making it a short one this week as the spring sport schedule is really starting to gear up, I am getting back into the swing of things with the button pushing career.  It was today last year that COVID really took hold of our country.  I'm grateful to see teams back on the fields! With the softball schedule changes, I will be out for radio tomorrow.  Case will also be taking the week off to be with his family.  Jared will likely be out at Ulmer to fulfill his button pushing duties as well.  So it looks like a classic edition of CCRHP with Jeff and Paulie to cover this week's event's and more. 

Be safe out there! & Go Cards
